The market offers a huge range of fresh fruit and vegetables, wonderful locally produced cheeses, plants, herbs, flowers, coffee, arts and crafts, collectibles, garden ornaments, clothing, a myriad of home made things and delicious temptations of all kinds.

Family friendly markets!

And if all this makes you hungry, there is plenty of food to eat right then, there’s excellent coffee, proffertjes (Dutch pancakes), German sausages (try the “Knackwurst” with mustard – yum!) or be tempted by baked jacket potatoes or fresh corn on the cob.

The Tamborine Mountain Showgrounds are quite large, so there is plenty of room to wander around.

Usually there’s a singer or performer on the gazebo stage, giving these markets a relaxing country atmosphere.  Large shady trees keep you cool in summer, and some open areas allow you to soak in the sun on cooler days.

The race is on!

Little kids can have pony rides or play in the kids’ castle area, or have some fun with the small kid’s car ride.  The “Tamborine Mountain County Markets” are definitely family-friendly, sometimes several dozen prams are seen parked in the eatery area!

For parking, there is some street parking all around “Main Western Road” but if you manage to find a spot, it can be difficult to cross the road and it can also mean a bit of a walk back to your car.

A much better solution is to support the SES or the local Fire Brigade who co-ordinate parking inside the grassy showgrounds.  Just turn into Normandie Court at the roundabout and follow the signs.  Entry is by gold coin donation, and an SES volunteer will direct you to your parking spot.  It is much easier then to drop your fruit, vegies and other goodies back to the car – because chances are -you are going to buy too much to carry around!

The coolness and fresh air of Tamborine Mountain invites you to thoroughly enjoy this country market day.  And whilst you are there, you can also drop in at the “Green Shed Local

The “Tamborine Mountain School Ground Markets” have become an institution for locals and mountain visitors alike. It could best be described as a mixture of a country market, a more traditional trash’ n’ treasure and a huge but still local garage sale.

Many stall holders are local residents of Mount Tamborine, offering anything and everything no longer needed in their households. Kitchen utensils and accessories, crockery and cutlery, crystal ware and collectibles, clothing and shoes, toys, sound records, tapes and DVDs, heaps of assorted bric-a-brac items – the range of items on offer need to be seen to be believed. Also old tools, small items of furniture, paintings, vases, Australiana, leatherwork – the list goes on and on…

Pick up some local fresh produce such as fruit and veggies, eggs, plants, nuts, soaps and cookies, freshly squeezed juices and of course a good cup of coffee – to mention just a few of the goodies on offer!
